Check alerts via SSH

Hello everyone!

We need to know if there is any command similar to the "alerts show current" of the Data Domain but to apply it to an ECS node.


This with the purpose of automating queries from Nagios to this ECS device via SSH.

You may use the below API to get the alerts from ECS using the tool svc_rest_cmd

svc_rest_cmd /vdc/alerts

You may run the above command from any ECS node and it will list all alerts.

Another tool available in recent xdoctor (current version as of 24th APril 2023 is Xdoctor 4.8-90.1) is svc_alert.

admin@ecsnode1:~>  svc_alerts -h
usage: svc_alerts [-v] [-h] [-xh] {list,summary,clear,test,mail,mail_kpi,snmp_kpi,mail_hc} ...

Thanks for your question.  I don’t see any documentation on a command like that. Here is the rest api guide and here is the rest of the documentation.

Let us know if there is anything else we can help you with.
